Game Weekly: ByteDance officially announced the divestiture of game business; Collapse: Star Dome Railway is Google Play’s best game of the year.

21st century business herald reporter Cai Shuyue reports from Shanghai.

In the last month of 2023, dramatic events in the game industry continued this week.

The most concerned dynamic is ByteDance’s announcement of a big retreat from the game industry. On November 27th, ByteDance officially announced that its game business will shrink in a large scale, and all the projects that have not been launched will be shut down except a few innovative projects and related technical projects.

This week, the news that Blizzard may return to the national service also attracted the attention of the industry. On the afternoon of November 30th, Tencent’s Rubik’s Cube Studio was suspected to broadcast live the related content of Activision Blizzard’s World of Warcraft in bilibili. A person familiar with the matter told the media that Blizzard was currently negotiating with many game makers including Netease and Tencent about the return of the national costume, but Tencent officials later denied the rumor.

In terms of industry, this week, SensorTower announced the top 10 downloads of global popular mobile games in October. The top 10 downloads of global popular mobile games in that month were Real Car Driving: Race City 3D, Roblox, Garena Free Fire, Subway Surfers and so on. In addition, the best list of Google Play 2023 was officially announced this week. Miha Tour "Collapse: Star Railway" won the best game in 2023 and the best story award of the year.

SensorTower announced the TOP10 downloads of global popular mobile games in October.

According to the latest data released by Sensor Tower, in October 2023, the top 10 most popular mobile games in the world were Real Car Driving: Race City 3D, Roblox, Garena Free Fire, Subway Surfers and so on. Among them, Real Car Driving: Race City 3D topped the list with more than 19 million downloads, of which India contributed 26.4%.

ByteDance officially announced the divestiture of game business

On November 27th, ByteDance officially announced that its game business will shrink in a large scale. For games that have been launched and performed well, they will seek divestiture under the condition of ensuring operation; For projects that have not yet been launched, except for a few innovative projects and related technical projects, they will all be shut down.

On November 26th, someone familiar with the matter broke the news on the Internet platform, saying that there would be a round of layoffs in ByteDance’s game business, and "the person in charge of each project under study was notified on Sunday that the project was dissolved, and a formal notice was issued on Monday". In addition, among the online game projects, even Crystal Nucleus and Planet: Restart, which have good data, only give the project team three months to talk about suitable buyers.

In this regard, the relevant person in charge told the 21st century business herald reporter that there will indeed be business direction and organizational adjustment, and more attention will be paid to the exploration of some innovative games and related technologies. But at the same time, it will also do a good job in the continuous operation of the products that have been launched, and fully protect the rights and interests of players.

Nancai comments:As one of the Internet giants, in addition to direct capital investment, Byte’s development of game business is more critical based on its own traffic investment in short video and other fields. Although the outside world can’t accurately estimate the actual value of this investment, the decision to divest the game business also shows that it is not cost-effective after internal accounting. Even if we talk about content ecology and empowerment, the distance between the Internet and games is actually no closer than that to new energy vehicles.

Yuan Jing, CEO of Mu Tong, responded to the rumors of sale: the company continues to operate independently and the national service is advancing normally.

On the evening of November 27th, in response to the recent news that Byte Group adjusted its game business and Mu Tong was sold, Yuan Jing, CEO of Mu Tong, publicly responded internally, saying that Mu Tong would continue to operate independently and would deeply cultivate the game industry for a long time. After the release of the internal response, he also said in a circle of friends, "I shouldn’t have said anything at this time, but I sincerely want to say that after such a long time, I like to be strict and like my friends."

Blizzard is negotiating with Tencent and Netease about the return of national clothes? Tencent’s response: The rumor is inaccurate.

On the afternoon of November 30th, Tencent’s Rubik’s Cube Studio was suspected to broadcast live the related content of Activision Blizzard’s World of Warcraft in bilibili. This move triggered a discussion in the market. A person familiar with the matter told the media that Blizzard has been negotiating the return of the national service with many game manufacturers including Netease and Tencent, but the specific partners and return time have not yet been determined. In this regard, tencent games responded to the 21st century business herald reporter, clarifying that the live broadcast was only a test, and it has now ended. Another person close to Tencent said that Rubik’s Cube is a self-developed studio under Tencent and will not represent external products. The rumors are inaccurate.

Nancai comments:After Microsoft officially acquired Activision Blizzard, some people think that although Blizzard has never found a home in China, after the acquisition is completed, Microsoft will ask Activision Blizzard to return to the China game market, and it is not impossible to resume cooperation with Netease or seek other partners.

On December 15th, the first phase of "Yuan Meng Xing" was planned to invest 1.4 billion yuan for the game ecological construction.

These things you have to know as a badminton player.

If our partners are good at football, we have a better chance of winning.

At work, a good partner,

It can really make people experience twice the efficiency with half the effort.

The partner has a good temper, and it is comfortable to win or lose a game.

In life, you need such a warm friend.

Being with TA is comfortable, cozy and the whole person is better.

In amateur circles, there are people outside,

No matter how awesome you are, there must be someone better than you.

Just try playing a few more groups.

Vision is very important, modest people always look at the soles of their feet, down-to-earth,

Proud people’s nostrils are facing the sky.

In the amateur circle, 80% of golfers dare not pretend to be good at playing.

Because playing badminton well will never happen overnight.

Badminton is a sport that looks easy and is hard to play.

This feature has also frustrated new golfers.

No one wants to fight you or can’t fight.

Actually, it doesn’t matter. Everyone learned it all the way.

Don’t feel bad about yourself,

When you think like this,

People who are not enterprising are already worse than you.

The old man in the arena, this is a process that never goes to the meeting.

Many people helped themselves when they were growing up.

Also try to help the little white golfer.

It’s great to win, and I feel that I have reached a certain level in badminton.

Losing is not angry, how can you lose? You shouldn’t lose!

You know, no one can always win.

I can’t see the performance of some golfers after losing the game. They look very hurt and make people speechless.

Li Zongwei was runner-up in the Third Olympic Games, but it became braver and braver, with a bent heart and not giving in!

With this mentality, you are already a winner in life.

For modern urbanites, being able to go out and exercise,

Its significance is not limited to fitness, but also a process of reshaping character and soul.

Playing badminton will change people’s mood, which is a consensus.

Of course, the purpose of playing the game is to win!

If there is a winning or losing thing, we must all strive to win!

One can’t play badminton,

You must have the cheek to ask your golfers in the arena.

Seeing some new golfers, I am not familiar with them.

Or if you don’t play well, you’re too embarrassed to ask your golfers out.

Wait for the golfer to ask him out, look through it with his mobile phone,

You know, the golfers don’t know you well,

Please don’t be shy when you need us.

It’s the same in life, not that others don’t want to help you,

You’re the one who kept them from knowing their plight.

Badminton rules are many and must be observed.

There are rules for sending and receiving, but the service court and sideline of singles and doubles are different.

Wear badminton shoes when entering the arena …

Respect the rules, at least not make mistakes,

Only we can adapt to the rules, and it is impossible to adapt the rules to you.

When you serve illegally and are pointed out by your golfer, be sure to thank him.

In the arena, players who don’t follow the rules are not welcome.

No, pot calling the kettle black.

Amateurs. Don’t pretend to be a professional bitch.

When an opponent makes an improper mistake,

Even if you don’t want to give him an encouraging look,

Please don’t smile scornfully,

In the arena, that expression hurt the golfers very much.

If you lose, you lose, so don’t make excuses!

Don’t take any objective reasons to find reasons for your loss. It’s very low.

The wind will tilt your ball and your opponent’s ball.

The lights are dazzling, and the opponent is not wearing sunglasses.

The venue is not suitable and the opponent is not at home.

This is also a kind of recognition of your own mind.

Growth is to make yourself better, and maturity is to accept those shortcomings.

The highest state in the face of misunderstanding is not to defend, but not to explain.

In the game, was misjudged? Forget it quickly and look at the next round.

Just kidding, we don’t have an eagle eye,

Tell him that the ball from the other side is out of bounds!

It is better to ask others to be practical and meaningful than to ask yourself to come.

Being a good partner in the eyes of a golfer is more important than finding a good partner.

This also applies to all couples, lovers and singles in the world.

Behave the rules and make clear the size of Fiona Fang is the premise.

It is more square to know clearly where the sideline of the court is.

Don’t be silly to catch the ball out of bounds or the ball that hasn’t been served out of bounds.

I remember when I first played ball, I didn’t have this concept.

I feel that the stadium is so big and the pace is not in place.

Buy some buckets of good balls, open your own new ball, and play with the ball.

In the same way, you can’t always lick others when eating, and you have to pay for it several times!

How many local tyrants are willing to keep you playing with the ball!

Strength determines everything. Don’t take luck for granted.

Luck is very important, and a lucky ball may be the key point.

But I can’t help you win the whole game,

Don’t be complacent because of the lucky ball, and you will be dissatisfied in every way after losing in the end.

Brother, winning or losing is really determined by strength, and all the players can see it.

Let’s get off the court after playing the ball. No one can dominate the court forever.

Never be a bully, no matter how much red bull you drink.

And don’t communicate with your golfers on the court. The golfers off the court are embarrassed to remind you …

It’s hard to squeeze time, and the venue is so tight. Put yourself in another’s shoes!

There are so many people in China that we have to do everything like this.

Focusing on playing ball is a completely different experience.

From the beginning of sending and receiving, concentrate, talk less and laugh less,

If you don’t play casually, you will play better.

Find out the priority of things, sometimes playing ball is not the most important thing!

No matter how much you love it, playing ball is just an entertainment project.

Fight or not, whoever loses wins, tomorrow will be the same.

Sometimes it may be more important to spend time with your daughter and your wife.

Because badminton is addictive, our golfers should arrange their time reasonably.

Of course, it is best to take your lover and children with you to the goal hall.

CBA News 3: Shanghai signed the teaching assistant of the national team, Cummings was rejected, and Si Nan averaged five hats per game.

Patriotic basket, love CBA, I am Sister Luo, and friends remember to like it after reading it!

In this offseason, the Shanghai team must take the lead in solving the problem of team coaches. After Li Chunjiang was banned, the Shanghai team was in a state of being leaderless. During the two seasons when Li Chunjiang led the team to play, he actually found the development direction and ideas for the Shanghai team. As far as the current situation is concerned, it is not suitable for the Shanghai team to find a head coach who doesn’t know the team at all, which is equivalent to establishing a new system from scratch. Next season, the performance of the Shanghai team may drop sharply, which is definitely meaningless. As far as the current situation is concerned, the head coach that the Shanghai team needs is a coach who knows the team and knows Li Chunjiang’s guiding intention, and the team now has such a person.

It is reported that the Shanghai team has planned to sign their former assistant coach Liu Peng, who is an assistant coach of the national team. Liu Peng’s coaching ability is really good. In recent seasons, he has been able to coach in the national team every time, and Du Feng has trusted him. The most important point is that Liu Peng has been studying with Li Chunjiang. He is very clear about the players that the Shanghai team is focusing on training now, and Liu Peng has a resume of overseas study. He is very worthy of being reused by the Shanghai team, but at present, Liu Peng is only the temporary acting head coach in the Shanghai team, and the team depends on his later performance. The Shanghai team has invested a lot of money in recent seasons, and they will almost start to pursue achievements next season.

Sister Luo thinks that Liu Peng is a coach who is more suitable for the Shanghai team. He has always served as an assistant coach in the team, and Liu Peng is a coach who is very willing to think. However, when he was the head coach of the Shanghai team, the team’s performance was not ideal, so Liu Peng was forced to leave class. Now he is not the same as he was then. Liu Peng has also made progress and promotion. The Shanghai team can fully trust his ability. In a word, Liu Peng’s coaching ability is not bad, otherwise he would not be able to enter the national team. Now there are many coaches that China men’s basketball team can choose, and he can be elected as the assistant coach of the national team, which at least proves that Liu Peng’s coaching ability has been recognized.

Liu Peng, Acting Head Coach of Shanghai Team, gave guidance.

The second news is about Cummings, a small foreign aid of Guangsha team. Recently, a well-known basketball reporter broke the news that Cummings has followed Guangsha team to Dongguan to prepare for the life-and-death battle with Guangdong team. However, fans are not too happy to hear this news. Many people think that Guangsha team should give up Cummings because his physical confrontation ability is really poor. In the face of Guangdong team’s tough defense, Cummings’ role is completely inferior to Wells’.

It’s hard to imagine that a foreign aid will be rejected by the fans, and the fans of Guangsha team really don’t want to see Cummings play. In the case of reusing Wells in the second game, Guangsha team won the final victory. Maybe it’s a good idea to abandon Cummings, but director Wang Bo still trusts him. This season, he prefers to use Cummings as a foreign aid, and Wells didn’t have so many chances to play before.

Sister Luo thinks that the fans of Guangsha team don’t have to worry. Even if Cummings follows the team to Dongguan, he may not be able to play. Now the list of 12 people in Guangsha team is redundant. Cummings can enter the big list first to see the situation. If Wells’ effect is not very good, then Cummings can play and give it a try. Comparatively speaking, Cummings’ three-point shooting percentage will be higher than Wells’, and his speed will be faster than Wells’s.

Guangsha team’s small foreign aid Will Cummings

The third news is about China insider who is playing in the United States. He is one of the most promising young insider players in China at present. He is only 16 years old this year, and his height has reached 2.12 meters. His wingspan data is 2.30 meters, which is definitely a top insider talent. When playing in American high schools this season, he can send out five blocked shots per game, which is quite scary.

In fact, from the perspective of static talent, there is a certain gap between Chisinan and Zhou Qi. qi zhou’s wingspan data has reached 2.36 meters, but Chisinan’s advantage is that he went to the United States to play earlier. Recently, Chisinan won the offer from the University of Alabama, a well-known NCAA team. The University of Alabama defeated the China men’s basketball team once in the European warm-up match. From this point, it can be seen that,

Sister Luo thinks that as long as they are truly talented players in China, they should sign up for the Cai Chongxin Foundation for Studying Abroad. Qi Sinan went to play in the United States through the sponsorship of Mr. Cai Chongxin. He not only had the opportunity to attack the NBA, but more importantly, Qi Sinan could only participate in the CBA draft after returning to China in the future. He could not directly sign contracts with other CBA teams. This is a very critical issue. In the future, more outstanding players will become the top draft players in the CBA draft.

Chisnan was invited by the University of Alabama.

At present, the value of the top pick in the draft of CBA league is far from enough. Like last year’s draft, there should have been many other young players. Fans all think that Wang Quanze will definitely be the top pick. However, no one expected that Wang Quanze had already signed a contract with the Guangzhou team.

However, if Chisnan can’t play in the NBA league in the future, he will definitely be an explosive top pick when he returns home. Which fishing team can get Chisnan, they have a good chance to rise. At least from the current situation, Chisnan has a strong dominance on the defensive end, and he is likely to be an inside player of qi zhou level in the future.

The two founders of Meituan joined hands again.

ChatGPT’s wind blew, and the US group Wang Xing was tempted.

Yesterday afternoon, Wang Xing, the founder of Meituan, announced in a high-profile circle of friends that the AI ? ? model made him "both excited and worried". In the future, he will personally participate in the A round investment of Wang Huiwen’s startup company "light years away" and serve as a director.

The original text of this circle of friends is: "The AI ? ? big model makes me both excited about the huge productivity that will be created soon and worried about its future impact on the whole world. Lao Wang and I have been on the road to entrepreneurship for nearly 20 years.Since he is determined to embrace this big wave, I must support it. "

Just last month, Wang Huiwen, another core founder of Meituan, published articles on social platforms continuously, announcing that he would start a business in AI, with the goal of creating "China version of OpenAI". Recently, ChatGPT, which is very popular in the technology circle, is the product launched by OpenAI.

His concrete measure is to contribute 50 million dollars., valued at $200 million, set up Beijing Lightyear Technology Co., Ltd.. However, its own funds only account for 25% of the shares. In his AI Heroes List, he wrote that another 75% of the shares are used to invite top R&D talents.

If these shares have not been issued by the time the company goes public, a non-profit fund will be set up to "invest in projects with unclear development path, slim realization hope and unclear commercial value".

As soon as this move came out, the four sides moved.

Some researchers questioned its capital and technology, and some people yearned for it, but never expected that the first big fish caught in this project was actually an old partner Wang Xing.

At this point, we look back,Recently, the investment and entrepreneurship of AI, Big Model, ChatGPT and other related tracks have entered the stage of racing against time.

Not only Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen’s "Double Kings" combination, but also Ali, JD.COM, Baidu and Tik Tok are actively participating in the competition.

After Wang Huiwen took out $50 million in real money, Wang Xiaochuan, a former Sogou CEO, also posted on social media that he was about to enter the "China’s OpenAI" battlefield.

On February 26th,Zhou Bowen, the former head of JD.COM technology, announced the recruitment of partners to build a China version of ChatGPT.

In the last two days, Yan Li, the core figure of AI technology research and development in Aauto Quicker, has also started a big AI model business as a new company founded after leaving Aauto Quicker.

Mu Li, a great technical god, and Alex Smola, his former mentor, started their business together, and the track they chose was also a big model-related project.

Coupled with this high-profile announcement by Wang Xing,At present, the domestic AI model entrepreneurial track has been crowded with big names, including many serial entrepreneurs and technical gods.

As the "best co-production venture combination" recognized in the Internet industry, the re-joining of Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen has brought a beautiful imagination to the industry.

On December 18, 2020, Meituan issued an internal letter, and Wang Huiwen, the co-founder and senior vice president of Meituan, officially retired as planned.

On the occasion of Wang Huiwen’s retirement, Wang Xing wrote a letter for him, briefly summarizing his ten-year entrepreneurial achievements.

"Joined the US Mission in 2010 to help the company stand out from the Thousand Regiments War; Three years later, we will build a US group take-out from 0 to 1, and then go deep into the upstream and downstream of the catering industry chain to build local service business scenarios such as store, home and travel; One year before leaving office, Lao Wang was still promoting the building of platform capabilities such as user platform, basic research and development, big data and Al. "

Wang Huiwen

It can be seen that Wang Huiwen plays a cornerstone role in today’s Meituan Empire. However, before the establishment of the US Mission, Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen had already cooperated many times.

In 1997, 18-year-old Wang Xing walked to Tsinghua University from Longyan No.1 Middle School in Fujian. At that time, the first classmate he knew was his roommate Wang Huiwen.

Since 2003, they decided to start a joint venture. It is said that Wang Xing interrupted his doctoral studies in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering of the University of Delaware, and Wang Huiwen also dropped out of the Institute of Acoustics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

In a year, Wang Xing tried 10 entrepreneurial projects until.In 2005, the real-name registration system social networking platform "Intranet", which was jointly founded by them, went online, and finally made a name in the industry.

This social platform, similar to Facebook, quickly took off in China. However, due to the broken capital chain and lack of entrepreneurial experience, Wang Xing’s team sold the campus network to Thousand Oaks Group for $2 million in less than one year.

Three years later, in 2009, Thousand Oaks Group renamed its famous campus network Renren. By 2011, when Renren was listed in the United States, its market value reached 7.482 billion US dollars, surpassing Sohu, Youku, Netease, Ctrip and Sina, becoming the third company with internet market value in China.

In this story, although the "two kings" group left early, their keen judgment and industry judgment on the Internet still surprised everyone.

After the campus network project, Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen went to toss up the projects such as Fanbu, hainei and Taofang, but none of them improved much.

In 2010, the two men got together again and jointly founded Meituan., and then completed the expansion of thousands of regiments, takeaway wars, big retail and big travel.

In a short sentence, how many wars are raging? After several wars and standing out from the crowd, Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen combined to gain a firm foothold, and more people began to call them "industry bosses". As we all know, the super entrepreneurial strength displayed by the two of them together is an important factor that makes everyone look askance.

Thousand regiments war

It is worth noting that after Wang Huiwen retired, he never stopped to invest in the technology industry.

Specifically, in April last year, Wang Huiwen’s signature on Instant was still "All in Crypto". After half a year, his interest shifted from Crypto and web3 to artificial intelligence, and he wanted to build the China version of OpenAI.

By the way, he also invested in LI and met Wang Xing in the investment field. In the last round of financing before the ideal IPO, Wang Huiwen’s name appeared on the ideal investment list together with Wang Xing.

Not only does Wang Huiwen continue to explore in the science and technology circle, but Wang Xing has gradually become an investment tycoon in the field of hard technology.

According to incomplete statistics, in addition to his ideals, Wang Xing’s personal investment projects also include mutual assistance, convenience, e-driving, Qingping Technology, Maibu Technology, flight steward, Tiger Securities and so on.

Wind data shows that there are 121 affiliated enterprises of Wang Xing and 39 foreign-invested enterprises, of which 34 are surviving. The enterprises they invest in are mainly engaged in scientific research and technical services, information transmission, software and information technology services, and leasing and business services.

It can be seen that the exploration of the two people joining hands to enter the AI industry is not as simple as a "supporting friends". In fact, there are both sides’ continued emphasis on the technology industry and their recognition of entrepreneurial ideas.

In the open letter of Wang Huiwen’s retirement, Wang Xing wrote that "Lao Wang and I are classmates and roommates with common interests, partners who work together to start a business, comrades who fight side by side, and lifelong friends who can collide with each other and talk with each other".

Different from the rhetoric in Wang Huiwen’s hero list, when the two really entered the AI industry, of course, all the spectators were most concerned about:What are you going to do and what kind of business model are you going to establish?

From the current mainstream point of view, the AI ? ? big model and ChatGPT entrepreneurship actually require high R&D investment. In fact, the only team in China that is most suitable for competition and has a greater possibility of success is BAT, an Internet giant with a cloud computing platform and a large number of users and related data.

Some insiders have calculated the relevant costs. "ChatGPT hardware needs 30,000 top-level GPUs, plus CPU, memory, hard disk, network and data center power supply and buildings, which is close to 10 billion yuan.Training takes several months at a time, and besides the huge cost of materials and electricity, there is also the cost of software development. "

In the past few years, both Ali and Tencent have invested no less than $50-10 billion in OpenAI. However, from the landing effect, the results are not obvious.

The same is true for Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen.They face as many difficulties as Ali.

At present, the advantages of the two men in the process of starting a business are rich entrepreneurial experience, keen market insight, talking about ideals, talking about feelings and grabbing talents. Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen are very powerful.

Earlier news showed that recently, Liu Jiang, vice president of Beijing Zhiyuan Artificial Intelligence Research Institute, wrote in a circle of friends that he had decided to join Wang Huiwen’s "light years away", and he also called other "AI heroes" to join the team.

It shows the appeal of the two of them, but in addition to the above competitive factors, the specific landing scenarios, related business models and profit models of the AI ? ? big model are still being explored.

Is it ToB, facing the business side, using ChatGPT and big model as an interface to improve the efficiency of production and service, or ToC, putting the AI big model technology to the ground and making a more reliable and intelligent chat robot?

Just like several keywords mentioned by Wang Huiwen in the continuation of the hero list, "unclear, vague and unclear" indirectly summarizes the mentality of both surprise and anxiety about related technologies in the industry.

Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen took a group photo.

What we can make clear is that in the process of AI entrepreneurship, in addition to technical belief, it is necessary to have sufficient capital and the support of related industries, and it is actually very difficult to simply explore technology without landing scenes.

Wang Xing and Wang Huiwen stood up and supported the industrial development with actual funds. They played more of the role of "investors". This move deserves more people’s follow. After all, no matter how difficult the technical research is, someone must promote it.

Betting on AI entrepreneurship is a new journey for these two Internet giants, and the whole Internet industry is waiting for the day when the truth comes out.

Microsoft executives revealed that GPT-4 will be launched next week as a multimodal model with video.

Reporter: Newcastle and West Ham are potential suitors of Maguire, and they may rent first and then buy.

Live broadcast on March 11th In an interview with British media TEAMtalk, reporter Graeme Bailey revealed that Newcastle and West Ham are potential suitors of Maguire, and they may rent and buy the central defender first.

Since Tenghahe took office, Maguire has lost the main position of Manchester United. The central defender is still an important member of the English team. Therefore, in order to ensure his position in the Three Lions, it is helpful for him and the club to leave Manchester United in the summer.

Reporter Graeme Bailey revealed that Maguire is indeed a player that Manchester United can sell, Newcastle and West Ham are potential suitors of the central defender, and the two teams may sign Maguire by loan-enhanced buyout or choose buyout. This has something to do with Maguire’s salary, which is about 200,000 pounds a week at Manchester United.

Although renting Maguire out can eliminate part of Manchester United’s salary account, it will also lead to the Red Devils not receiving his transfer fee this summer, which will hardly help Tenghahe who wants to introduce center.

Paris was hit in the face! 1.6 billion = 0 The strongest youth training in the Champions League, 11 people worth 300 million, can enter the Champions League quarter-finals.

After losing to Bayern in the second leg of the Champions League knockout round, Greater Paris once again missed the Champions League. In the 12 years since FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 settled in, they have spent 1.6 billion euros to reinforce it. Then, in the past 12 years, the failure again and again proved that money is not enough to win the Champions League.

At the same time, the continuous investment has also made some fans sneer at Greater Paris. Simply put, they only use money to buy players, which directly leads to the majority of "mercenaries" in the team and no sense of belonging to the team. Why European teams such as Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona can stand tall in the series of European giants for a long time? Apart from investment, developing youth training and youth training are all indispensable conditions. It’s not that there are no outstanding youth players in Bali. On the contrary, they have sold these youth players many times. Recently, foreign media selected 11 of the strongest youth trainers in Paris. The value of this lineup is as high as 300 million euros, and it is not a problem to enter the top 8 of the Champions League.

As can be seen from this lineup, Nkunku, who plays for Red Bull Leipzig, is the highest-paid player, with a value of 80 million euros, ranking second only to Bellingham and Mushala in the Bundesliga. Nkunku played for Paris in 15-16 seasons. He played for Paris for four seasons in total, and won four league titles, four French Super Cups and three French Cups with the team. However, with Neymar, Mbappé and icardi as the main players, Nkunku, who can only be a substitute, chose to move to Red Bull Leipzig in 2019, and scored 5 goals and 13 assists in his first season in the Bundesliga. Nkunku scored 35 goals and 16 assists last season, led his team to the top four in the Bundesliga and the German Cup, and scored a hat-trick in the Champions League against Manchester City.

Koman, who is the right avant-garde, may be the most familiar Paris youth training player for fans at present, and it is also the smoothest development today. After only four appearances for Paris, Koeman joined Juventus as a free agent, and after two years in Serie A, he moved to Bayern. It was his goal that took the lead for Paris in the first leg of the Champions League knockout. At the same time, it was also because of Coleman’s final decision in the 2020 Champions League that it ended Paris’ dream of winning the championship with big ears at hand. It is worth mentioning that in the 11 years since his debut, Koeman has won the league championship every year. In addition, he has won a number of championship honors such as the World Club Cup, the Champions League, the European Super Cup, five German Super Cups, three German Cups, and an Italian Cup. It can be said that Koeman is an out-and-out champion reaper (Kane silently left tears).

Another Diaby, who is worth 60 million euros, also plays in the Bundesliga. This season is Diaby’s fourth season in Leverkusen. In the past two years, his scores were 10+13 and 17+14 respectively. This season, he also scored 11 goals and 5 assists. Diaby had 4 goals and 6 assists when he was a substitute in Paris in 18-19 season. However, in the summer of 19 years, Paris sold the winger for 15 million euros.

The midfielders are Labio and Gondozzi. Labio played in Paris for nine years, and then broke up with Greater Paris because of the salary increase. Although the breakup between the two sides had a lot to do with Labio’s mother, it was also an important reason that Paris was willing to offer sky-high salaries to other players who joined, but not to pay higher salaries to its youth players. Gondozzi didn’t play for the first team in Paris, but he was produced in the youth training in Paris. After a period of unsuccessful gunner years, Gondozzi joined Marseille and began to show his strength. Now this teenager, who was ridiculed by fans as "Prince Gong", has become an indispensable midfielder in Marseille, with 5 goals and 11 assists last season and 4 goals and 4 assists this season.

The most famous defenders are Flanders Mendy and Kimball Bay. Mendi, like Gondozzi, has never played for the first team in Paris. He made a name for himself in Lyon, and moved to Real Madrid in 2019 to replace Marcelo as the main force. In the past three seasons, he has won many championships including the Champions League, La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup and World Club Cup with Galaxy battleship. Jin Pengbei is the only player who is still playing in the Paris Youth Academy. However, Jin Pengbei was unlucky this season, and his main position was taken away by Ramos, and his vice captain was deprived. He was also reimbursed for his Achilles tendon rupture.

As for the goalkeeper position, it is Maignan, the main goalkeeper of AC Milan. Maignan won two league titles in Paris, but as a substitute goalkeeper, he basically didn’t get any performance. In the summer of 2015, he only joined Lille for 1 million euros. In the 20-21 season, he helped Lille win the league championship again after ten years, and then joined Milan to become the anchor of the Rossoneri’s defense line.

It can be seen that the players produced by the youth training in Paris are not bad, and they also have the strength to stand in the giants. However, in order to realize the dream of winning the Champions League faster, Paris with deep pockets has repeatedly sold these young players one by one, and in the end, it is also empty.

Will artificial intelligence reduce human creativity?

This is a controversial topic. As an efficient and intelligent tool, artificial intelligence can help people complete some tasks that require a lot of calculation and analysis, such as natural language processing, image recognition, data analysis and so on. In the past, these tasks may require human beings to invest a lot of time and energy, but with the development of artificial intelligence technology, these tasks can be completed more quickly and accurately, thus saving human time and energy and enabling people to concentrate more on creative work.

However, some people think that artificial intelligence will reduce human creativity. Because artificial intelligence is a "non-human" technology, its working principle and thinking mode are different from human beings. Some people think that when people rely too much on artificial intelligence to complete certain tasks, they will gradually lose their creative thinking, because they only need to complete tasks according to the guidance of machine learning algorithms, and do not need to think about solving problems themselves. This kind of mechanical repetitive work may make people gradually lose in-depth thinking and creative solutions to problems.

However, some people think that artificial intelligence will not reduce human creativity, on the contrary, it will stimulate human creativity. Artificial intelligence can process a large amount of data quickly and accurately, and extract rules and patterns from it. These patterns and patterns can be used as inspiration for human creative thinking, so that human beings can better understand problems and find solutions. In addition, artificial intelligence can accomplish some mechanical repetitive work, so that human beings can be more involved in creative work, which will promote human creativity.

Therefore, whether artificial intelligence will have an impact on human creativity still needs to be observed and explored. While using artificial intelligence, we also need to keep our creative thinking and play, and constantly look for innovative ideas and methods to meet the ever-developing social needs.

Former Blues defender on Liverpool’s conceded goal: What is Fan Dike doing? He seems to have given up.

Live on March 11th In the 27th round of the Premier League, Ouattara broke through Fan Dike’s defensive assist Billing to help Bournemouth lead Liverpool 1-0.

Minto, a former Chelsea defender and Talksport commentator, criticized Fan Dike’s defensive performance on the show. He said: "Ouattara used speed to insert behind the defense line, and the Liverpool defense line was pressed forward. This was a simple overhead pass."

"I don’t know what Fan Dike is doing. Looks like he gave up there. I really don’t know what Fan Dike is doing. He doesn’t seem to follow Ouattara at all. "

"Of course, he is a key member of the team and one of the best central defenders in world football, but he has been complaining about physical fitness and schedule problems. If his physical condition is not good, let him rest! Having a huge lineup is just to do this. "

What exactly is "digitalization"? A thousand people may have a thousand answers in their hearts.

What is the characteristic answer of 36Kr? We imagined a variety of schemes to describe digitalization, and finally chose this scheme now-tracking the public publicity reports of 662 listed companies and counting the "hot words of digitalization practice" involved.

These "hot words of digital practice" also reflect these well-known companies’ understanding and practical choices about digitalization to a certain extent: behind every practice is the real investment of manpower, material resources and financial resources, and every report often means that these digital practices are positively and negatively related to the company’s business or brand. It is for this reason that this series has the value and significance of continuous observation.

This article is the statistics of related data from January to February, 2023.

According to the statistical data of 36Kr, the most noteworthy trend in January and February is that ChatGPT and artificial intelligence, which continue to explode, have also affected the digital practice propaganda of these well-known enterprises, and many companies have also begun to publicize the application or influence of artificial intelligence in company digitalization. It can be seen that the word frequency of last year’s hot word champion "Metauniverse" dropped rapidly in January, but "artificial intelligence" showed a growing trend.

But this does not mean 100% that large enterprises are "chasing the wind". On the one hand, the practice of digital intelligence often takes a certain period. In recent years, AI has gradually matured in the industry. Some enterprises did adopt artificial intelligence technology in their previous digital intelligence practice, which is why they have propaganda materials. On the one hand, it also fully shows that large enterprises and the capital market behind them attach importance to artificial intelligence. In addition to the 662 companies under our monitoring, many companies have also announced artificial intelligence-related businesses or cooperation, especially ChatGPT-related businesses and cooperation.

Monthly frequency change of hot words

According to statistics, from January to February, 2023, the Top 10 of "digital practice hot words" was:

  • artificial intelligence
  • AR(Augmented Reality)
  • VR(Virtual Reality)
  • mix reality
  • Metaverse
  • 5G
  • big data
  • cloud computing
  • industrial internet

January-February, 2023 "Digital Practice Hot Words" TOP 10

According to the previous related research (160,000 public articles in 10 years, we found the digital secrets of 662 most valuable companies in China), Metauniverse, Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality became the most popular digital practice technologies for large enterprises in 2022), we can find that the Top 10 of "digital practice hot words" is relatively stable.

Since 2017, some mainstream technical terms, such as augmented reality, 5G, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, etc., have basically maintained a high ranking and popularity, and have remained in the top 20. As shown in the figure below, before, we counted the annual word frequency ranking of some popular words, which basically showed this stability.

From the eighth place, the number of word frequencies plummeted. This shows that large companies are willing to try some new technologies, but their investment is not sustainable and stable. This also shows on a certain side that it is often not easy for startups in the field of enterprise services to expand large companies.
